Last Sunday afternoon, I visited The Book Den after attending a matinee theater event in downtown Santa Barbara, California. The Book Den is a charming new & used bookstore just a half block off of State Street on Anapamu Street. The Book Den describes itself on its "About the Book Den" page as:
Nestled half a block off State Street, Santa Barbara`s main shopping street, The Book Den has been serving the literary needs of Santa Barbara residents and visitors alike for nearly eighty years. We stock tens of thousands of new, used and out-of-print books in a clean, bright and well-organized store. We`re mainly a large, general antiquarian bookstore, meaning we stock books on most subjects, from Art and Literature through History and the Sciences. And we stock books of all ages, from this year`s literary break-through to books centuries old.
The Book Den offers various author signing events and they also buy books for cash or for store credit. You may find their author signing events by clicking on their store name at the top of this post, which will take you to their home page. To find out more about their book buying terms, click on Selling books to The Book Den.
The Book Den is open 7 days a week. Store hours Monday through Saturday are open from 10AM to 6PM and on Sunday they are from 12PM to 5PM. You may contact The Book Denby phone at (805) 962-3321. You can also like The Book Den on Facebook!
